This amazing Sculptural project appeared around a bend on the road from Orange to Wellington.. I went whooshing past before the image made sense, it was so unexpected my brain shifted to denial !.. Well we spun about for another look .. Glad we did ! .. the main structure is built from some of the remains of a bridge that went down sometime in the Seventies.. with rail-line clips, a madness of steel bits, Stone, concrete and mosaic tiles,.. some painted and fired.. with what looks like blown glass and a set of tubular chimes. A splendid construct for the birds to play in and the curious to delight in.. filled with images of poignant history and sweet sentiment…, presented on a canvas of a perfect Autumn day.   Francis Ferguson was the Visionary and chief artist responsible. We parked under a beautiful large old gum and drifted in and around it for awhile before gunning it for Rosie’s old “hood” , Armidale, NSW for a bit of a break for a few days with not much of an agenda other than to pay a visit to Armidale and New England Fibre and Print Artist, Rhonda Ellem’s home and studio…. more about her tomorrow !

    Have a plan ‘ Before you even begin remodeling, sit down and get a
    firm idea of what you can, and can’t afford. Other technological advancements
    include the development of sensors that allow buildings to know
    the strength of tremors and respond appropriately, including the activation of
    tremor or movement damper systems that act like shock absorbers, letting buildings withstand stronger tremors without
    collapsing.
